Meet Our Team

In the past 10 years alone, the Erb/Steelman Team has helped more than 900 families buy or sell a home in the metro Denver area.

Laurie and Jennifer believes their team approach is the best way to serve their clients and help them realize their real estate dreams with the least amount of stress. Such action frees them up for time with family, friends, career and recreation. The goal is to put a client’s needs first, bringing to bear all the team’s skill and expertise.  To handle the big picture as well as the smallest detail in order to help clients with one of the major steps in their lives: buying or selling a home.

Sharon Clayton is a rare Colorado native with a short stint in the windy city of Chicago.  She studied organizational development and human resource management at Regis University and proceeded to consult and develop new business channels in the fast paced world of technology and financial services.  Sharon has spent the last ten years with RE/MAX, she loves the entrepreneurial spirit and professionalism the organization and the agents embody.

Sharon is passionate about the needs and goals of her clients, and she specializes in bringing peace of mind to homebuyer’s searching for their dream home. Using her experience and foresight she initiates communication in every detail of the transaction, from the first phone call all the way to close.

In her spare time, Sharon is an active volunteer with Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children.  A self professed foodie you’ll find her enjoying one of Denver’s wonderful  restaurants with friends and family, listening to live music, spending time with her French Bulldog Remy, and seeking adventure in the Colorado Rockies.


Clare Hatcher is an exciting new addition to our team. She brings a youthful spirit as well as a diverse background. She hails from South Carolina but has stops along the way that include Prague, Miami and San Francisco. Her business degree from the University of Miami caught the attention of our RE/MAX corporate office. As a member of their social media team, she served as an integral part of the company’s digital strategy by generating content that engages consumers at every step in the home buying process. Clare soon discovered her passion for real estate after working with numerous RE/MAX agents and consumers. She thrives in the fast-paced environment and loves to be challenged. We look forward to her skills as she interacts with all our clients insuring an outstanding home buying or selling experience.

Clare is quickly adapting to the social scenes that Denver offers. Her love of the outdoors is a natural fit as she is an adventurous hiker and finds that the black runs of Vail bring on the best mountain high. Her latest interest is probably her most passionate: volunteering for the Dumb Friends League and Life is Better Rescue. So on any given day, she takes in a new foster dog that needs a little more TLC.
